Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co. is releasing a new beer that will have a creamy vanilla taste.
Alltech’s latest beer, the Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale, is brewed with a hint of flaked corn and bourbon vanilla beans, and resting in Kentucky bourbon barrels until it’s ready to drink.
The new ale will be a permanent addition to Alltech’s products. The ale is 5.5 percent alcohol by volume and will be available March 3 in six-packs in Kentucky and in other states the following week.
Alltech has other products that have been aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels, including Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout. Alltech also recently released Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Blackberry Porter as part of its Barrel-Aged Seasonal Series.
